Ghouls, ghosts, skeletons and even Hannah Montana were at my door this weekend, but that's the scariest thing I've ever seen at halloween. I was standing there just two weeks ago, don't feel so guilty about that handhold we broke off Maria.

I took a friend climbing for the first time ever on Saturday, and we walked past the rockfall... I was like "don't worry, that doesn't happen very often here." I'm not sure he believed me.

Saw a flake get pulled off of Ribs a couple years ago. Scared the climber and us. The flake was 4 feet high and maybe 2 wide. It destroyed a small tree and damaged a bunch but nothing like that.

Would have been amazing to see this rock fall from a distance, of course. I'm glad to hear no one was hurt.

I was chatting with some folks who live near the Trapps, and the night of the rockfall, they thought they heard really long thunder rolling, and couldn't figure it out because the sky was clear. It must have been pretty loud.

Between 10-11 PM is what I heard, as well. But I also heard that there was additional rumbling at around 6AM.

how does Goclimb who lives in Denver know what time the rockfall happened and no one can catch the jerk offs who stole the rescue equipment.

Isn't there a seismograph at the preserve? A rockfall that big has to have registered.
